Some Friends to Feed
The Story of Stone Soup

by Pete Seeger and Paul DuBois Jacobs
illustrated by Michael Hays

G.P. Putnam's Sons 2005

“Stone Soup is what you need, When you have some friends to feed.”

For generations, readers have devoured the story of Stone Soup. Now Pete Seeger, Paul Dubois Jacobs and Michael Hays cook up their own version of this well-loved tale and introduce a brand-new song!

When a hungry soldier appears in town, the grown-ups tell him there’s nothing to eat. But with a little ingenuity and some help from the village children, the soldier concocts a plentiful brew, all the while singing a wonderful song. Before long, there’s enough to feed the whole town.
